The San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres meet Tuesday in MLB action at Petco Park.

The San Francisco Giants look for another victory after splitting their last 12 games. The Giants have scored 26 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants have won six straight games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 72 hits and 42 RBI while Joe Panik and Brandon Crawford have combined for 121 hits and 49 RBI. Tyler Beede gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 6.45 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. Beede is 0-1 with a 9.72 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.

The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 11 games. The San Diego Padres have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 97 hits and 60 RBI while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes have combined for 149 hits and 97 RBI. Matt Strahm gets the ball, and he is 3-6 with a 4.94 ERA and 71 strikeouts this season. Strahm is 0-1 with a 3.52 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The Giants are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 4-1 in Beedes last 5 road starts and 5-2 in Beedes last 7 starts. The Padres are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 2-8 in their last 10 vs. a team with a losing record and 2-5 in Strahms last 7 starts vs. National League West. The Giants are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in San Diego. The over is 4-0 in Strahms last 4 starts overall. The over is 5-1 in Giants last 6 road games.

Beede hasn't looked good these last two months, allowing 27 earned runs in his last 27.2 innings, and he has a 7.11 ERA and .282 allowed batting average on the road this season. Strahm hasn't been much better, allowing 24 hits and 21 runs in his last 18.2 innings, and he has a 5.85 ERA at home this season. I want nothing to do with either of these pitchers in their current form and usually when this is the case, I lean toward the over.

Over 8.5
